Fishing Spirits Game With Force Feedback For Realistic Fishing Action
Fishing Spirits, by Namco Bandai Games, is an arcade fishing medal game for eight players and features force feedback controllers. It will be in game arcades in Japan from July 2012.
"This is a medal game that up to eight people can play at once. It's totally different from previous medal games. This is a new genre, where it really feels like you're fishing."
The large display is composed of two 55-inch screens, and over 50 kinds of fish both large and small appear swimming around on the display. The new fishing rod shaped controller, with vibration and reaction forces, gives tactile feedback to the player.
"First of all, when you flick the rod controller, the float flies in the direction you intend. When you get a bite, the rod controller starts to shake, and the reel becomes heavier, depending on how big the fish is. When you reel in, you get your catch. The sensations of getting a bite and the reel feeling heavy are important keys to creating a realistic fishing game."
"In this game, it's the nearest fish that bites, so you aim for the fish's mouth. The idea is that you cast your line toward a big fish. But sometimes the fish escapes."
